At the CWG Configuration Workgroup conference in Budapest, DERWID wins the “SAP User Experience Contest 2019” together with msg treorbis GmbH.
The SAP User Experience Contest 2019
DERWID has been working for years with msg treorbis to integrate a product configurator in SAP UI5 Fiori and this year SAP invited the company to participate in the UX Contest 2019.
Every year the CWG Configuration Workgroup conference brings together SAP configuration experts. This year European conference, held in Budapest, ended on Wednesday May, 22nd with the awarding of the prize for “SAP User Experience Contest 2019”.
The challenge was to create an innovative user interface for the SAP product configurator, using and exploiting the new SAP Cloud APIs with microservices for direct integration into a cloud-based SAP VC backend.
DERWID and msg treorbis have brought together energy, creativity and commitment over the past few months and have achieved the goal with the “Burger Konfigurator”.
The SAP VC configuration project of DERWID and msg treorbis
The competing project is a configurable burger with a menu based on a SAP VC configuration model. The application was created based on the organizational rules of project management, which allowed the coordination of different people, professionals and experiences from Austria, Germany and Italy.
“We set the configuration starting from an empty sandwich: the user has the possibility to choose the type of bread and then fill it with different ingredients. The hamburger customization takes place through an intuitive and user-friendly guided tour that also allows you to complete the typical menu with French fries, salad, ice cream and a drink. ” explains Horst Exenberger, DERWID’s CEO.
Moreover, the configuration experience with DERWID Product Configurator and SAP UI5 Fiori allows you to view the burger price in real time after any type of change to the hamburger or menu.
The interactive 3D product configuration and real-time visualization complete the application. This technology also makes user-friendly every complex business: it is possible to present a product to the end customer quickly and immediately.
DERWID and msg treorbis began a positive and fruitful partnership in 2015.
“The excellent achievement reached today winning the 2019 User Experience Contest confirms that our collaboration is leading us in the right direction.” concludes Exenberger.
